Saturday, March 10

Game 1 – Lakers 54, Sixers 46

  Let’s kick of the final regular season weekend with two teams who still have a chance for that fourth and final slot. The Sixers would need a lot of help & the Lakers just need a win to stay close & that’s just what they did behind some solid offensive scoring from R. Moore (26) and B. Stickney (25), who was very consistent all game. The crimson squad had a phenomenal second half but fell a lil’ short in the comeback as U. LeBron had 13, S. Clavel had 12 and J. Regis had 10.

Game 2 – Hawks 66, Sonics 49

  The Hawks handed a devastating loss to the defending champs on their quest for a repeat, with ‘MVP candidate’ L. Walker leading the way as usual for the red n yellow with six three-pointers and a game-high 30. The Sonics’ last year’s “Rookie of the Year,” J. Montiero, had a splendid game himself with 27, dropping 11 of it in the fourth quarter. His teammate and “2018 ROY candidate” J. Sorrano added 10 in this very tough loss for Bubba’s crew.

 

Sunday, March 11

Game 1 – Sonics 63, Bullets 60

  A much-needed win to stay in the hunt is what the Sonics got in underdog fashion as the Bullets had a decent shot at first place overall. An amazing game from J. Montiero was highlighted by a game-high 37 as X. Sorrano scored 16 in this huge win for the Sonics. With the loss the Bullets are still in the madness regardless, in the third place position. Team MVP A. Mutebi had a team-high 22 & B. Chen added 13 in the Sunday opener.

Game 2 – Celtics 68, Sixers 46

  A Win gets you first place and that’s where the Celts will be positioned for the madness, as they took care of the Sixers by going up 22-7 after the first and just kept building from there. Celtic J. Pomare led all scorers with 23 followed by S. Cherefant (18) & M. Preziosa (15). For the Sixers, U. LeBron was the only player to hit double digits in this one with a solid 20 points.

Game 3 – Lakers 71, Pistons 54

  “With this win, I do Clinch” the final playoff spot in the madness. The purple & gold closed out the regular season by extending their season another week as four other teams will look on and see if the underdog can capture the bling! Great team work, great coaching & an outstanding shooting performance from B. Stickney – dropping nine triples, four of them in the fourth to put it away & ending with a game-high 37 – not to be forgotten R. Moore ‘team’s leading scorer’ for the season, notched another 15 to add to his total. In a not too shabby game for himself, the Pistons’ M. Niboh had a team-high 27, and ‘team’s leading scorer’ M. Tafese added 16 in the final game of the season for them.

Good Luck to the Celtics – Hawks – Bullets – Lakers! Who will be our New Champion in 2018?
